Why 1000 Books?
The best way to ensure a child has the skills necessary to learn to read is having someone read aloud to them. They will learn that letters make sounds, sounds make words, and words make stories! Create life long memories and instill a love of reading.
Who can sign up?
Any child from birth until kindergarten, at any time.
What books count?
Books read at storytime, by teachers, family & most importantly you. If you read it more than once, count it! Ebooks count too.
Does it have an end date?
There’s no end date except for your child starting school. Read 3 stories a day and you will have read over 1000 books in a year!
How do we keep track?
Sign-up at the Children’s Desk.You will get a log to track your first 100 books. Bring it back to us when you reach 100 for a sticker and a new log. Receive a small incentive for each milestone along the way.
